Starting position

Dumbbells on the ground on both sides of you. Your feet a little less than shoulder width apart, knees bent. Grab the dumbbells in a neutral grip. Torso slightly bent forward, back straight, shoulders pulled back and chest out. Inhale and tighten your abdominal muscles.


While keeping your arms outstretched, lift the dumbbells by extending your legs and straightening your torso to reach a vertical position. Exhale at the end of the motion. Then, slowly go back to the starting position. Always remember never to bend your back.
